On the Job: Mary Hegre
Mary Hegre, long-time resident from River Falls, recently received two awards from Schneiderman’s Furniture at an awards ceremony. She received an award for second in over-all company sales and first place for Protection First sales.
Hegre has worked at Schneiderman’s for 19 years in the Woodbury store and has received numerous awards in sales and customer service.
The Woodbury story is closed for a complete remodel that includes a second story addition. The newly renovated store will have a grand opening in March.
Hegre has lived in River Falls since 1972. She married Dave Hegre in 1977. They have two children: Erik and Dana who both live on the East Coast.
From 1982-1986, Hegre taught language arts at St. Bridget’s Catholic School. She then decided to attend graduate school at UW-River Falls and work at Kulstad’s Clothing on Main Street, which she and her husband owned. She worked there starting in 1986 until the women’s department closed in 1992.
Hegre then went on to work for the newly opened River Falls Home Furnishings for five years. She also served on the Main Street board of directors in River Falls as promotion chairwoman and as president in 2000.
In 1996 she joined Schneiderman’s when its new story in Woodbury first opened.
